Scorpio Season is for Transformation

It’s Scorpio season! Yay! I’m a double Scorpio, born with both sun and moon in this complicated sign.

The stars are aligned and… it’s launch day!

So, the stars are aligned and it’s launch day. The combination of the full moon in Virgo, which is good for ironing out details, and the date, 2/22, reassured me that it’s a good day to pull the trigger.

Thank you to everyone who helped out on the back end with design, photos, testing, moral […]
